The helpful Partselect video showed a slightly different model, as my icemaker uses optics instead of a bail for shutting off the icemaker. I ordered new optics based on a a customer description that, if the light on the right hand side of the freezer door jamb was blinking 2 flashes followed by a pause,it indicated that the optics were faulty, so I ordered and replaced them. This did not solve my problem. Then on-line I found further information that said I should close the flapper on the left side, and if the light was steady (which it was) the optics were OK. I then ordered the motor unit. I unscrewed the single screw under the right hand side of the track with a 1/4" nut driver, but found that sliding out the ice maker involved a little wiggling and prying, and, because it was awkward to disconnect the electrical connection, I found that it was not necessary to disconnect it. Then, after removing the end cap, it was a straight forward process to replace the motor, while adjusting the shaft to line up. Then,reverse all procedures and I now have ice. Success!

Pulled the refridgerator out from the wall . Unplugged it and shut off the water supply. Removed the rear lower panel . Removed the 2 bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Took off all 3 plastic nuts and pulled the lines out. Had to drill the bracket hole to remove it from the smaller bracket. Cut off the ends of all 3 lines. Mounted the new valve to the bracket. Pushed the lines into the new valve connectors. Bolted the bracket back to the frame of the refridgerator. Turned on the water and checked for leaks. Reinstalled the back lower panel and plugged in the power. Tried the water and everything worked now.

When the Ice Maker stopped, I called a repair guy. He wanted almost $500.00 to do the job. I thanked him and paid the $75.00 fee for coming out and got on PartSelect.com to look at what he said was wrong. I ordered the parts -- they came amazingly quickly -- and looked at the videos. The hardest part was that the water valve was a complete replacement and it took a little while to figure out the changes (the old one had nuts and threads; it was completely different). In fact I almost sent it back -- it looked like the wrong part. Once I got going (after chatting with Janet in customer service -- she was awesome!), it took just about two hours to do the whole job. It works great now. My wife even thanked me -- that rarely happens!

We followed the video which was a great help. The only difficulty we had is the black rubber tube (water fill tube) was hard to get into the new ice maker. But finally got it. The new icemaker works wonderful! No more buying ice!

I researched my problem online and watched a video of a ice maker installation before I attempted my repair. I ordered the part at 11am Thursday morning and the part arrived at 10am Friday morning via Fed Express. First, I removed the bracket the was holding the ice maker in place. Second, I slide the ice maker out. Then I disconnected the old ice maker. Next I used a screwdriver to remover 3 screws for the plastic housing, since it was need for the new ice maker. I plug it in and put the bracket back in place. I went out for a couple of hours. I returned home and ran to the freezer.I open it and I found ice cubes. I was finally able to throw out my ice cube trays. Boy I hate them!!! Don't fear this repair it's simple and very cheap. I saved roughly $160.00 by doing it myself. I will use this company again since they were great

I removed the flapper door. I removed the screw to remove the wire connection. The ice maker slides out easily. I disconneted the power wires. Removed the motor cover. Removed the 3 phillips screws. Replaced everything in reverse order. I unplugged the unit to reset the LED panels. The ice maker is still not making ice.

First off, the part I ordered arrived with broken tab. I called and had no problem getting a replacement unit mailed out right away. The video repair really helped a lot. Had a little trouble with the fill tube, it was a little hard to get inside the icemaker when installing the new one. Other than that, it was a piece of cake following the video instructions.

After my ice maker just quit working I did some troubleshooting based on the users manual. Found all the electronics to be working fine so I took out the ice maker to see if the water fill tube was frozen, it was not. Next I took off the motor access cover to discover the gear that rotates the spindle was pushed out further on it's drive shaft so it was not meshing with the motor drive gear. I pushed the white gear back on further only to discover the small locking tab on the shaft was broken off allowing the gear to slip outward and become unattached. Had to order a complete motor/gear assembly, installed in 20 minutes and all is fine again. Easy fix.

After watching a YouTube video I was able to determine that my ice sensor was working properly. I was getting water through the door dispenser so I decided to pull the icemaker. First I removed the 2 hex head screws holding the ice door which gave me access to the icemaker. I removed the hex head screw holding the electrical plug cover on the bottom right side and removed it. I then pushed up on a plastic tab on the bottom left side of the ice maker and slid the icemaker out so I could access the electrical connection. After unplugging the electrical harness(plug/socket) I completely removed the icemaker from the freezer. The white square end cover easily pulled off the icemaker exposing the control and motor assembly. After removing the 3 screws holding the assembly on I pulled the assembly off the end of the icemaker. Installation was as simple as assembling the parts in reverse order making sure that the ice delivery male shaft "flat" mated with the "flat" on the motor drive female socket. After reassembly I went for a bike ride and when I returned about 3 hrs. later I was happy to see my icemaker was making ice again. This is actually easier than it sounds if you have any mechanical apptitude whatsoever.

I saw the question listed on your website with your recommended part to repair. Instead of ordering a whole new ice maker I took the chance and ordered the recommended part for repair. I saw the video and when the part came it was really easy to replace. I only wish I had found your website earlier and not gone without ice for as long as I did. Thanks.

I ordered both the Ice maker and the control boards as It was for a rental and I did not want to make more trips then necessary to repair. I installed the new control boards and the ice maker and the refrigerator now makes ice.
